Airbnb says hosts in central Paris can only rent out their homes for up to 120 nights a year, a new cap introduced following the successful implementation of similar measures in London and Amsterdam.

The company's director for France and Belgium, Emmanuel Marill, said on Tuesday 14 November that the cap would apply to the 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th arrondissements. Hosts will have a "ticker" on their home page showing how many nights they have remaining.

Meanwhile in 2016 Berlin banned tourists from renting entire apartments through Airbnb and its competitors in an attempt to protect affordable housing.
